Well hello there love bugs! I feel like I haven’t talked to you guys in forever. I miss ya! If you follow me on Snapchat, then you probably already know that I vacationed in LA this weekend for my birthday and to hit my first ever beauty conference: Ipsy Generation Beauty. It was an overwhelming experience but a truly rewarding one as I met some really nice influencers, received some amazing goodie bags and got a chance to check out some of my favorite brands in action. Like Milani.


Take A Deep Breath with Philosophy’s New Cheek Goodies!

Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Cushion Color for Cheeks, Liquid Sunshine

Sometimes the most simple way to relax is to just sit back and take a deep breath. That’s exactly the approach Philosophy is taking this spring with their latest line of foundation (I’ll show ya later), blush and bronzer. The Take A Breath line now features Cushion Color for Cheeks and a Sheer Liquid Sunshine highlight and bronzer that feels carefree and laid-back like a fresh deep breath.

ColourPop Best O Creme Gel Liner Review

ColourPop Best O Creme Gel Liner

If I had a nickel for every ColourPop product I liked I would be broke. Not because I don’t like any of their products. I actually like them so much that I would collect all those nickels and place another order LOL! If you’re a regular here then you know just how ColourPop crazed I became after placing my first order. When you find good makeup for under 10 bucks that rivals department store quality it’s hard not to place order after order.


Iman Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick Review

Iman Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick

Spring is right around the corner but I’m not letting go of my edgy and vampy lipsticks until I see sunny skies and May flowers. I just can’t get enough of them right now! One of my new favorites is the Iman Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick from her fall Alter Ego Collection. I’ve been addicted to brown lips lately and Rebel is like the perfect 90s brown lip that’s a must have.

Iman Luxury Contour Trio Review

Iman Luxury Contour Trio

When you have dark skin it’s easy to get caught up on the idea that you need to spend the big bucks to find a decent contour. More brands have started hopping on board by adding deeper shades but they come with a hefty price tag that doesn’t always seem worth it if you’re just a beginner or don’t contour as often. Or just want options without breaking the bank. Leave it to Iman to know exactly how us dark skin divas are feeling and catering to our needs. You go, Iman!


Urban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion Review

Urban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion

Ahh, primer. I remember when I used to think that primer was completely unnecessary but now I can’t live without it. Whether you’re dry or oily, primer is an absolute must because it helps your makeup glide on like butter, last longer and just generally look better. There’s a lot of great primers out there but my current fave is theUrban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion.


Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Lipstick Swatches

Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Lipsticks: Chocolate Cherries, Chocolate Milkshake, Chocolate Honey, Metallic Chocolate Diamonds, Metallic Candy Bar, Metallic Frozen Hot Chocolate

The Too Faced Melted Chocolate Lipsticks are here! I need more liquid lipsticks like I need a hole in my head but Too Faced is making things really hard for me with their new round of Melted Chocolate Lipsticks. They’re just like the original Melted and Metallic Liquified Lipsticks except this time they’re dipped in chocolate and feature a yummy chocolate scent that makes them oh so hard to resist. I could easily buy them all!


New Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Shades!

Stila Ricco, Beso, Baci Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

Holiday collections get me every time. The sets and palettes are always super cute and come with amazing prices. The only thing I don’t like is that all of the good stuff is usually limited edition. Never to be seen again. I branched out a lot over the holidays and tried a couple of new brands including Stila. I’ve never tried any Stila products before but when they released 2 limited edition mini liquid lipstick sets I knew it was the perfect time to jump on board.


Everyday Cheeks with the MAC Faerie Whispers Collection

MAC Faerie Whispers Pearl Blossom Beauty Powder, Cheek Pollen Blush

I love a pop of color as much as the next girl but sometimes I just want to rock a natural look. Something quick and simple that won’t leave me in the mirror for 30+ minutes blending my little heart out until my arms get tired. That’s why I was excited to see the MAC Faerie Whispers Collection for holiday last year. Faerie Whispers was loaded with soft, shimmering neutrals that I knew would be perfect for my quick, everyday looks.


Dolls Kill x Lime Crime Haul & Swatches

Lime Crime Black Velvet Velvetine, Cement Velvetine, D'Lilac Unicorn Lipstick, Airborne Unicorn Unicorn Lipstick, Chinchilla Unicorn Lipstick

Lime Crime has been a hot topic among the makeup community for years for a number of reasons. A lot of them were pretty negative so I’ve managed to steer clear from Lime Crime after one debacle too many. I have a thing for fun colors and adorable sparkly packaging so I’ve always been curious but weary to pull the trigger. Don’t get me wrong, Lime Crime makes some beautiful lipsticks. But makeup should be fun and never drama filled, right?

Fast forward to today, Lime Crime appears to be more about the fun than the drama so I finally decided to indulge when I caught a killer sale on Dolls Kill. I’ve never shopped there before but after seeing an ad flash across my Facebook feed for 70% off makeup including Jeffree Star and Lime Crime I didn’t think twice. Fun time!
